Had You Once

from This Time Around by Michelle Lewis

lyrics

You’ve entered my mind a hundred times
since you’ve been gone
And though I’ve been through my doubts I can’t figure out
just where I must have gone wrong
And why you did go I’ll never know
or quite understand
But love you I could, much better, I would
If you’d give me one more chance

And friends, they say, “Don’t bother girl,
he’s not coming back again”
but I refuse to swallow the fact
that this is the end

Cause if I Had You Once
I can get you back again
If I Had You Once
I can get you back again
But I don’t think if I ran to your gate
they’d let me in
So could you meet me halfway
between the clouds
And heaven

Well some drunken fool played the part
of a ticking time bomb
And he didn’t think enough to stop his car
‘til he hit you head on
And they say that it was painless
‘cause you died right on impact
I can’t believe you couldn’t feel a blow
to your body like that

And I think this is all
incredibly unfair
To watch you fly away and leave me
to crawl down here

But if I Had You Once
I can get you back again
If I Had You Once
I can get you back again
But I seem to be lost
and lacking all sense of direction
So could you please tell me
the best way to get
to heaven

And I’m wishing now for one last chance
to say things I did not
But goodbye never did cross my mind
‘cause I always thought

That if I Had You Once
I could get you back again
If I Had You Once
I could get you back again
If I Had You Once
I will get you back my friend
Cause I lost you once
I will not lose you again
And I know you’re busy up there
working for the man
But come and see me if your boss
gives you some time off
from heaven.

Michelle writes intensely visual songs, rich with melodic texture and emotional depth, and she performs with an unmistakable swagger.
